Drew McIntyre Says 'Not All Of' Singing With Tyson Fury Was Supposed To Air At WWE Clash At The Castle

Drew McIntyre didn't win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Clash at the Castle when he squared off against Roman Reigns.

After the loss, McIntyre was greeted by Tyson Fury in the ring, and the two men broke into a rendition of "American Pie" by Don McLean. The entire performance aired on Peacock and left fans a little confused as McIntyre was more jovial than expected given his failure to capture the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Speaking on the Hollywood Raw podcast, McIntyre said "not all" of the segment was supposed to air.

"The singing that happened in Cardiff, if you had told me, 'You're going to sing a song after you lose a big match,' I still haven't checked how much was on TV, but not all of it was supposed to be on TV, but we went for it. If you embrace it, chances are the crowd is going to embrace it too and you're going to have a fun time together. After that fun time, you deal with the serious storyline stuff on the following TVs," he said.

McIntyre's answer came on the heels of him discussing embarrassing moments in his career where he said that there is nothing that can embarrass him because he realizes what is important.

"I was once a New Year's baby, that was not televised. That was pretty embarrassing. These are things that, when I was younger, I'd go, 'I can't believe this is happening, I'm such a serious wrestler.' Eventually, you realize, this is for kids. We're playing right now. You get the chance to do this wild job you've always dreamed of, you're entertaining people and you can't just do the same thing every week and be mad. I'd love to dress up as a baby right now. I'd have a hell of a time. When I was younger, 'I'm such a serious wrestler, I cannot believe I'm putting on this sheet thing, a half-ass toga with members of 3MB and an untelevised show.' I had one of the guys pull the toga thing and it came off, so I had my under tights under it, no kneepads or sneakers, I did a little dance around and looked like a stripper. It was a little embarrassing, but if it happened today, I would love it. These days, there's nothing you can do to me or put me in a position where I'd get embarrassed because I've been through so much and I realize what is important now and realize the entertainment factor," he said.

McIntyre was involved in a big entertainment segment on Friday's WWE SmackDown as Scarlett shot a fireball into his face.
